Summary: this borad is not available in an already made machine to my liking and to my required specs - the board took a little longe to arrive but it is exactly what I require for a homemade surveillance system with 24 TB storage attached
Summary: pros: audio solution overall board layout dual nics cons: pricey qualcomm wireless card I have been getting the g1.sniper line since they started with x58 they always put focus on the audio and this board is no different. The audio performance while is not as music geared(gaming oriented on the 5) as the original g1.sniper the sniper 5 audio is still leaps and bounds better than boards using realtek audio chips.
Summary: excellent motherboard, great value, love it, just does not support all ram modules Gigabyte though needs to have their bios updating software runnable with 64 bit OS's they use a 16 bit app to update the bios and if you are running windows 7 ultimate 64 bit, you cant upgrade the bios unless you are a programmer, or try it some other way.
Summary: Just got this board today and won't have a chance to test it out as I've not received my CPU or RAM yet. That said, the reason I'm posting here now is because I wont to point out that the first image, as of today (18 November 2013) is the wrong image for this product. The first image shows the old LGA 1366 chipset (i7-900 series processor) MB. The second image IS the correct image of this motherboard. In short this IS a G1.
